Asterisk interaction via ARI¶
- Asterisk out of basic-pbx configuration samples.
- Considering the following users: 1001-prepaid, 1002-postpaid, 1003-pseudoprepaid, 1004-rated, 1007-rated.
- CGRateS with following components:
- CGR-SM started as translator between Asterisk and CGR-RALs for both authorization events (prepaid/pseudoprepaid) as well as postpaid ones.
- CGR-CDRS component processing raw CDRs from CGR-SM component and storing them inside CGR StorDB.
- CGR-CDRE exporting rated CDRs from CGR StorDB (export path: /tmp).
- CGR-History component keeping the archive of the rates modifications (path browsable with git client at /tmp/cgr_history).
Starting Asterisk with custom configuration¶
To verify that Asterisk is running we run the console command:
asterisk -r -s /tmp/cgr_asterisk_ari/asterisk/run/asterisk.ctl ari show status
Starting CGRateS with custom configuration¶
Make sure that cgrates is running
At the end of each call Asterisk will generate an CDR event and due to automatic handler registration built in CGRateS-SM component, this will be directed towards the port configured inside cgrates.json. This event will reach inside CGRateS through the SM component (close to real-time). Once in-there it will be instantly rated and be ready for export.
